Thank a Vet/Military person Day
229 years ago, a group of guys got together and declared this country independent from Britain. They started up this row called the Revolutionary war that was embedded in an idea of self-determination and self-governance of the people. And thus, our armed forces were born. These are the people that gave us our freedoms, and they are the ones that ultimately protect them. Thank them, because they do a job that many of us either choose to not do, or cannot do because of other limitations.
A fucking men.
No offense but maybe we should also take the 4th as a day to celebrate the idealists and social philosophers who gave the armed forces something to fight for. Soldiers fight for causes maybe we should remember the folks who make up the good causes (be it life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness or stopping the Nazis) once in a while.
The idealists and philosophers that started the ball, yes. Those of today, they get the “eh” from me.
